X:1 T:The Glen Reel M:2/2 L:1/8 C:Ed Reavy R:reel Z:Joe Reavy N:Glens are not always pictures of springtime greenery. Ed remembers N:them much as Nora did in Syngeis Shadow of the Glen- "and seeing N:nothing but the mists rolling down the bog, and the mists again, and N:they rolling up the bog, and hearing nothing but the wind crying out N:in the bits of broken trees left from the great storm, and the streams N:roaring with the rain." Ireland is the terrible beauty of the dark glen N:in the depth of its wild wind and storm.
